Model Catalogue Information

YEAR INFORMATION
2001 This loco was one of the first batch of twenty Kings. Built in July 1927, it was renamed in 1930, fitted with a double chimney in 1956 and was eventually withdrawn in 1962. Separately fitted hand rails, fine scale valve gear, plus many other features only associated with Super Detail locomotives, adorn this model and are complimented with a superb paint finish. All 6 drive wheels have pickups which allows the five pole ringfield motor housed in the tender to perform as a Super Detail model should.
2003 Sprung buffers, double chimney (fitted 1956).
2004 Sprung buffers, double chimney (fitted 1956).
2005 Sprung buffers, double chimney (fitted 1956).
